The View Hotel is a middle sized hotel on a hill overlooking the beautiful lake in Bariloche. You need to climb some steep streets from the city centre to get there, but it is worth the climb and the location therefore is central but in a quiet neighbourhood.
If you arrive in the afternoon you will be welcomed by the British owner. Very nice for a change to talk some English after many half-Spanish/half-English conversations. The owner and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful with booking an excursion, but also with preparing an early breakfast at 06:30 hours.
The room is spaceous and the beds are good. There is a small desk, wardrobe and modern bathroom. The wifi-signal is good.
One disadvantage of the hotel is the staircase which is not separated by a door from the aisles. This lets through noise from people walking on the steps, but also from conversations on the ground floor. There is no lift, which wasn’t a problem for us.
Breakfast is very good with very nice croissants, toast, cereal with yoghurt or milk, a fruit basket with apples, kiwis, bananas etc.
One thing to bear in mind is that when you book through Booking.com (or likely other online travel agents), the VAT (IVA) is not included in the rate mentioned on the voucher. The VAT-rate in Argentina is 21%, so this could be a considerable amount. As this was our first hotel stay in Argentina we were somewhat surprised by it, because we hadn’t read the small print carefully.
The View Hotel is not a bargain, but the price is fair according to us.
